Appendix A Elements of Art and Principles of Design Concepts related to the elements of art and principles of design become more relevant when taught within a context of interest to the students, rather than in isolation. Students should learn these concepts through their daily experiences and through reflecting on the art of others. The following outlines what the students should experience for the elements of art and principles of design in the middle years. These concepts should be reinforced and applied throughout the year. The Elements of Art Line In the previous years of study, students have looked at a great variety of line in the natural and constructed environment, recognized hidden lines in the art works they have studied (lines used to control eye movement by repetition of lines, colours, textures, shapes and forms) and used line to express their ideas. In the middle years, students should continue their study of line through observations and a variety of experiences. They should become more aware of the many subtleties of line and how the quality and direction of the real or implied lines may suggest many different ideas and experiences. Possible examples of line in art works from Saskatchewan Art Works are in slides #48, 50, 51, 55, 56, 58, 65, 68 and 70. In addition, students in the middle years will: Grade 6 Grade 7 Grade 8 & investigate the ways that they and others use line to express ideas and experiences in art works of all kinds (including film, architecture, advertising, sculpture, clothing design, etc.) & begin to understand how they and others can use line to express ideas and experiences in art works of all kinds (including film, architecture, advertising, sculpture, clothing design, etc.) & understand how they and others can use line to express ideas and experiences in art works (including film, architecture, advertising, sculpture, clothing design, etc.) Colour Colour is an element of art which can be the most expressive but can also be the most difficult to describe. Students in the middle years should further their study of colour in the environment while learning about many relationships between colour and

themselves. Through an exploration of different colour schemes and techniques, students should develop an understanding of some of the expressive qualities that can be achieved through colour. The teacher should continue to provide activities that require the students to explore a variety of media and tools and to use colours in a variety of ways. A colour wheel can be a good resource for the students to use to understand and organize colours (see Appendix B). Possible examples of colour in art works from Saskatchewan Art Works are in slides #48, 54 (high intensity), #67, 74, 82 (primary), #47, 62 (monochromatic), #49, 52, 53, 58, 60, 69, 78 (complementary), #63, 65, 81 (analogous), #72 (split complementary), #51, 59, 61 (value), #55, 56 (tint), #60, 62 (shade). Students in the middle years will:
